Orthotics

Postby mike offerman » Mon Dec 10, 2012 3:15 pm

Does anyone have a recommendation for a place in Northern Colorado to get custom orthotics made?

Thanks

if you go to dr yvonne weber in boulder, shes awesome. you can probably call her and get a recommendation from her for where you live. She seems pretty well connected.
Big difference though for skiing orhtos and hiking/climbing/work shoes.
I only go weighted for my skiing orthos. the hiking ones were done unweighted and were fine but we had to take down the arch a bunch.

I wouldn't go without them anymore. They made a HUGE difference for me.

Another recommendation for a place in Boulder - PTI Orthotics. Aaron Anderson is fabulous.

Check local ski shops that sell custom foot beds. I have a couple of different ones from different ski shops. Have been happy with them. One pair was $85+ the other, thinner one was about $140, if I remember correctly. With the thicker pair that I use most, from the start I went up a shoe size on everything that the inserts go in - running shoes, hiking boots, etc.. My feet are a bit of a mess and I would have a hard time being active without the inserts.

I was forced to get a custom pair after ankle surgery last year - used them to get back into walking, but never again after that. I'm a huge fan of Superfeet, but you've probably already been down that road...

Thanks for the feedback. Will be looking into those two Boulder offices.
